Connectathon Invites Programmers, Clinicians, and Innovators to Build Next Generation of Healthcare Apps

On April 23rd and 24th Indiana HIMSS, in collaboration with Eskenazi Health and Epic, will be hosting a “connectathon” aimed at building the next generation of integrated and interoperable health solutions. The event will challenge programmers, clinicians, and innovators of all kinds to utilize the Epic sandbox in order to build new applications utilizing Health Level Seven (HL7) Fast Healthcare Interoperability Standard (FHIR) application programing interface (API) standards.

FHIR opens up exciting opportunities for developers to build across interoperable EHRs. We’re excited to work with Eskenazi Health and Indiana HIMSS to encourage grassroots innovation by the broader developer community.” – Janet Campbell, Vice President of Patient Engagement at Epic

The connectathon stems from the many challenges healthcare currently faces across the country, including: putting patient data in the hands of patients, identifying at-risk populations, monitoring patients at risk for falls, identifying inappropriate medication use, and care planning across the continuum. The event seeks to turn innovators loose to create unique applications that address these issues and many more.

“Indiana has long been a state known for interoperability and health information exchange innovation. We are honored to partner with Eskenazi Health and Epic to solve some of our most complex challenges in healthcare with the brightest innovators.” – Brian Norris, Vice President of Indiana HIMSS

This event will take place at:
Eskenazi Health
Rapp Family Conference Center
720 Eskenazi Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46202

“FHIR provides the opportunity for a new HIT standard which could hold the promise to speed application development and interoperability between platforms leading to a new app ecosystem.  Indianapolis is well positioned to be a leader in this new reality". – Parveen Chand, Chief Operating Officer of Eskenazi Health

This event is made possible with additional support from sponsors, Diagnotes, Intelligent Medical Objects Inc, Eleven Fifty Coding Academy and Hall Render Killian, Health and Lyman

Come spend a weekend with us and build the future!
